I Love You, Map – The Hoboken Open House Google Map for Sat. 2/20 and Sun. 2/21

Every Open House in Hoboken this weekend as compiled from the Midweek and Hoboken Reporter, the MLS, every Realtor website and email and Craigslist courtesy of the Turoff Realty Team

A friend of mine sent me a link to this great clip from the movie “I Love You, Man.”  It cracked me up, and I thought it would be a great way to start off your house hunting weekend.  (Please note – This is Howie, and I have the maturity level of a kindergardener.)  Enjoy!

Want to know which open houses are on Saturday and which only Sunday? Click on “tools” at the top of the list and enter the word “sat” or “sun” (without the quotes) into the search box.

Did you know that the agent hosting an open house is the Seller’s agent? Whether it is the actual listing agent or any other agent from the same company, that person legally represents the sellers.  Not only that, the hosting agent – by law – has a fiduciary duty to the seller to get that seller the highest possible price for that property.  Do you think it might be a conflict of interest for that same person to then represent you?  Many people think so.  In fact, in many states (other than NJ) it is illegal for the same agent to represent the seller and also work with the buyer.

Did you know that when you go to an open house you can see the property at the open house on your own and, if you like it, go back to it with your own agent? You can!  So if you see something you like at an open house you might want to consider finding your own agent who does not work for the seller. Just because you walk into an open house does not mean that the hosting (seller’s) agent gets to “claim” you as his or her customer – even if you “sign in”.  You are the consumer.  You are spending your hard earned money on what is probably the biggest investment you will make in your life.  Don’t you think you should be able to work with whom you choose?
